X-Wing Disaster

Posted October 15, 2007 8:16 a.m. EDT

It was going to be a red-letter day in model rocketry and Star Wars fandom -- a big, X-Wing model rocket launch!

It happened October 6 in California at Plaster Blaster 2007, a model rocketry festival.  The big attraction, an X-Wing model rocket launch, didn't got exactly as planned.  Click to watch. 

ALERT!  About 20 seconds into the clip, someone over a speaker utters a a little profanity.  So I'm giving this one a PG rating for one (1) dirty word.  Otherwise, it has the Brian Shrader Clean Living Seal of Approval.
